When people on the West build drones and other cool mechanry this guy from Russian South West has made a tracked vehicle for himself, basically a large tracked armchair to travel around. The parts were used is an old Lada car (it’s engine wheels and some other stuff) the conveyer belt and a seat. How did he built it and how it moves we can see inside of this posting:



So these are the tracks, basically. Caterpillars. One hundred forty of them and two hundred eighty connecting parts. 3945645

The conveyer belt holds them all.

    Most tracked vehicles that have rubber on their wheels use solid rubber tires, not inflatable.
    Nice job on the machine.

    Track maintenance – always a problem in muddy conditions.

    BTW Nice design work. The fabrication is very well thought out. The tracked vehicle is, for the most part, made from recycled parts other than a little bit of new steel and rubber mat. Effective design and economical to make.

    did you notice the ‘rear’ axle is now in the front, but turned upside down so it will go ‘forward’ in normal gears.

    I very much admire his creativity, ingenuity and active mind! Great job. I would love to drive that to the supermarket! Track tension can be controlled with tire pressure.
